Someone recommended we try Jax Diner. When we got there it was packed but they had open seating at the "bar". We ordered the sliders trio but the star of our meal was the "All Day Addiction" plate! It was gourmet, delightful, filling meal! The pesto was AMAZING. We're going back tomorrow & will share because honestly it was too... More

Wow, for $35.00 for a breakfast for 2 we should be raving but far from it. The eggs were hard and overcooked as was everything we ate. The sourdough toast had to be stale before it was toasted as it was the hardest toast I ever ate. The chicken fried steak was nothing more than a fried plate of crust.... More

We were traveling with friends - we decided to have lunch here - everyone enjoyed their lunch. Food was good and service was good. Nice treat!

We went to Jax's because we heard it was a great place to for the family. It was exactly the opposite. We were greeted with a rude hello from the hostess and I felt like a bother coming into the restaurant. She took us to our table and it took 10 mins for our waitress to come. She was not... More

We were excited to eat at Jax after seeing it was featured on Guys show, but what a huge disappointment. Our party of 6 had to wait about 15 mins to be seated at about 1pm since they were busy. We were fine with that thinking wow it must be good and we were starving. Our waitress took our order... More

We were excited to try this restaurant after seeing it reviewed on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. We got there at about 6 PM with one other family in front of us. They were seated and we waited to get a table. We waited for almost 30 minutes to get seated even though there were at least 6 tables open. There... More

We went here because of the tv show and it had good reviews. We were seated pretty quick but they put us a party of 5 in a booth that would barely fit 3. We had to ask to be moved and they did but before we moved we had an uncountable number of flies meet us at the booth.... More

We had our entire group of 25 accommodated with just a phone call a few minutes before we arrived. They bent over backwards for our large group. Awesome wait staff! Highly recommend!

I saw Jax from a parking lot across the tracks. We were going to check out a place more down town but we did not like the menu and decided to try Jax. My Butterfinger shake was about the best I have ever had. The only thing I would have done differently on the Chili Cheese Burger would have been... More

We went up to Truckee from our home in South Lake Tahoe on Father's Day for lunch. Since we had heard of Jax Truckee Diner on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives, we thought we'd give it a shot. We were not disappointed. The crab cake eggs benedict were outstanding. They were fresh, the english muffins were home made and the... More
